Shedd’s conservation programs are constantly striving to grow and adapt to a changing environment. Listen to Your Lakes, our Great Lakes awareness campaign, delivers educational messages to the millions of people who live in the Great Lakes region about the importance of a healthy Great Lakes ecosystem. Coastal America recognized that the Listen to Your Lakes campaign has reached over 65 million people to date and continues to seek new ways to raise awareness, increase urgency, and connect citizens to this amazing ecosystem so we can all make a difference in protecting them.
